And in 96 when he fought Holyfield, Mike showed up in INCREDIBLE condition. He showed up in better condition than he had for his fights from 90-92. Think about that fight with Holyfield.... Just because Mike lost doesn't mean other guys are going to beat him the same way. That was an incredible fight.

96 Mike still takes Ike's head off in my opinion.
How could he be better than Holyfield in 96 when he got beat by him?

Evander just had a great night. I think Dempsey is better than Tunney too.

What is there to suggest that Tyson was a better fighter than Holyfield in 1996, that makes no sense to me.

Tyson of 1996 was "shot" he came out of prison and had never taken a single punch in over 5yrs, he won 4 fights on intimidation not ability, McNeeley, Seldon Mathis & Bruno never put up any kind of a fight and all was beaten before the first bell, Evander Holyfield who himself was "on the slide" was not intimidated so was able to beat a fighter who had very little left. Ibeabuchi was a young fighter on the up with very good boxing skills who would not be intimidated by that version of Mike Tyson, i see this fight going similar to how the Ibeabuchi vs Tua fight went with Ike winning a lopsided decision.

Holyfield wasn't at the top of his game but he had a hell of a night. If Mike was shot there's no way he could have put on such an incredible outing. I would agree that Mcneely, Seldon and Bruno were all bums, but Mike looked to be in incredible condition and fought a hell of a fight. If he were shot he would not have made it to the 11th round.

Not prime, but definitely not shot.

That was Mike's toughness.. He had IMO one of the great chins of all time and he proved it that night against Holyfield.. all great fighters have one great last fight in them and that was Mike Tysons final performance... maybe not "Shot" but less than 50% of what he once was in the late 80s
